Looked thru the tech folder, if it's there i missed it.I'm looking for the location of both of these looking at some kits and the oil cooler kit doesent come with intake gaskets. I'm new to diesels but not to turning a wrench any help would be appreciated. Also are there other thing that I should do while I'm in there.
The oil cooler is directly under the oil and fuel filter assemblies, as they actually bolt to the top of the oil cooler housing. The EGR cooler runs on the underside of the intake manifold on the passenger side. Yours will either be square or round depending on if you have an 03 motor in your 04 or not. The gaskets are reusable, but I did replace them the first time I replaced the oil cooler. A lot of guys also replace the turbo drain tube and fuel pressure regulator while in that deep.
thanks that helps, I will finally have time to woork on it this coming week.
When I got the truck back it has a massive oil leak now that the mechanic told me was the oil cooler I'm wondering what would cause this ?
I should have given some back ground information. I drove to work (40 miles) drove ok spitted alitle but cleaed up so I didn't think anything of it. Got in to satrt it up and leave andthe truck wouldn't start. Had it towed to a shop , they did there thing and told me it was the ICP that there wasent enough oil pressure to start the motor. Had them replace it, went to pick the truck up and they couldn't start it and now there is a MAJOR oil leak that they told me was the oil cooler, it's very ahrd to start and won't stay running fr more than 5 seconds. I wonder if this isn't the result of them pressurizing the system ? I decided to fix the truck myself.
I'm still reading thru the tech folder, good stuff.
